CONTEST OVER — Michael Deeds: Win free tickets to Nickel Creek concert

This undated image released by Nonesuch shows members of Nickel Creek, from left, Chris Thile, Sara Watkins and Sean Watkins. The trio of musicians from Nickel Creek grew up performing together, but ultimately it was the nearly seven years spent concentrating on their own separate musical interests that made returning to the stage together all the more exciting. They reunited last year in Los Angeles with the modest goal of a small 25-city tour to mark 25 years since the band formed and an EP of new songs. That quickly blossomed into a full-length album and they are starting on the expanded second leg of that tour in July, including stops at Forecastle Festival in Louisville, Kentucky, and the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island.
